10/10! really tasty and simple to cook. I also didn't not use bacon. I added a little white wine instead of water once it had evaporated too much towards the end, which I would recommend, but the recipe is fool proof as it is. Thanks Kiwipom.

Yum! I didn't use the bacon but otherwise kept to the recipe. I had to add a little water to the tomato sauce because it all evaporated about 15 minutes into simmering it on low heat. The flavour was very yummy even Little Miss (DD) who's been off her food had a taste and said it was yummy but spicy. Hubby and I enjoyed it very much and ate it with crusty white bread. Thank you Kiwipom

Really tasty, easy recipe. Used deli ham instead of bacon. Added two fillets of orange roughy cut up into chunks as well as green prawns. My daughter and I ate most of it as a main with crunchy garlic bread. Will certainly be having this again. Highly recommended for the seafood lover.
